NEW TRANSFORMERS 5: The Last Knight Trailer #3

NEW Transformers 5: The Last Knight Trailer #3

YET another NEW TRANSFORMERS 5: The Last Knight Trailer #3! More of the plot is shown in the trailer where Transformers have been on Earth and apart of their history since the Middle Ages. #Sigh Yeah. Okay so here’s MORE about Optimus Prime & the “creators” who turn him EVIL and maybe into a new Unicron? Who knows, does it matter? Anyways, the world looks like it’s a mess with tons of dinobots and a new hero in young Izabella (Isabela Moner) along with returning male lead in Mark Wahlberg & his funky bunch in Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, Stanley Tucci & John Turturro.

Watch Optimus Prime goes breaking bad & Bumblebee is the new leader of the Autobots trying to save the ravaged Earth from Michael Bay’s version of Cybertron. Expect LOTS of indistinguishable backgrounds & setting from your household chrome dinnerware!

Transformers: The Last Knight rolls out on June 23, 2017.

Here a Transfomers roll call for the upcoming movie…

Optimus Prime (Peter Cullen)
Hound (voiced by John Goodman)
Hot Rod


A cloaked dump truck
A red McLaren 570S
A silver LeEco LeSEE Pro Concept
A mechanical three-headed dragon
An Amphion-class submarine

The Mist Official Trailer (story by Stephen King)

The Mist TV Show on Spike TV trailer - April 2017

“The Mist” slowly drifts into our television viewing for this summer as mysterious, sinister mist takes over a quiet little town. Just in time to scare the crap outta us. This new horror show is clearly going for a different vibe than the original movie adaptation of the book. More on the creepy, ghostly, evil presence side of the story vs actual creatures from another dimension coming out of “The Mist” and invading a small US town. Either way, this has an enjoyable scare factor to it & could be a big hit this summer for Spike TV.

More here from Entertainment Weekly

“The Mist” from a story by Stephen King, premieres Thursday, June 22nd on Spike TV.

I can’t wait to see what they all get up into and how both the Kingpin, Madame Gao, The Hand & the upcoming mysterious villain Alexandra played Sigourney Weaver. Lots of supporting characters from Élodie Yung as Elektra Natchios, Scott Glenn as Stick, Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple, Simone Missick as Misty Knight and Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing.

Talking Comics for 04.05.17 – X-Men Gold #1, Royals #1, Riverdale #1, & Marvel Quits Diversity?

Talking Comics for April 5, 2017

Before hitting your local comic book store tomorrow, check out this weeks episode of Talking Comics 04.05.17 with Mark & Chris! Talking Comics for 04.05.17X-Men Gold #1, Royals #1, Eleanor & The Egret #1 from Aftershock Comics, Black Cloud #1 from Image Comics, Rock Candy Mountain #1, Sovereigns #0, Armory Wars III Good Apollo #1 from Boom Comics, Riverdale #1, All New Wolverine #19, Superman #20, Star Wars Rogue One Adaptation #1, & Marvel Quits Diversity?

I believe that Marvel will realize how stupid they sound about the Diversity comment. I agree that it’s not about Diversity in Marvel Comics recently but perhaps the slumping sales comics is that the comic book stories and/or artwork aren’t that great to hook in readers and win over retailers. Personally, I love all the legacy characters from Kamala Khan (Ms. Marvel) to Riri Williams (Iron Heart) to Amadeus Choi (New Hulk) and Captain America Falcon is great. Personally, I feel that Captain America Falcon (Sam Wilson) hasn’t changed but stepped up to the Captain America mantle with full respect – too bad the fandom doesn’t feel the same. I do agree that perhaps Marvel could invest more in their current Diversity characters as well then what feels like rushing to make a new Diverse legacy character(s).
